I'm a Dutch arts teacher. I love Japanese movies and drama's. Love the language and culture too. I think the Japanese have a great sense of humor. I'm fond of their school and coming-of-age drama's. But I like their realistic arthouse movies and action drama's too.
I think a big plus is the length of Japanese drama's: 10 to 12 episodes of 45 minutes. Short but sweet. This gives you the chance to see a lot of different stuff.
I like watching anime too. Favorites are Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Mushishi, Samurai Champloo, Natsume Yuujinchou, Noragami and Boku no Hero Academia. At my school some awesome kids have started an anime club and they've asked me to sort of sit in. Every week they watch anime, read and draw manga, listen to J-Rock and K-Pop, play games, have a cup of tea and socialize. It's so much fun!
I've recently started watching South Korean drama's and movies. I have to say this has become my new obsession. Allthough I like some of the better romance drama's and historical drama's too, my favourite K-drama genre is (political) action/thriller or action/comedy.
